As an effective way for knowledge representation and processing, fuzzy rule-based models have been extensively studied and widely used in practice. In many circumstances, a very limited amount of data or insufficient computational resources make the construction of accurate models a genuine challenge. In this study, a granular augmentation of fuzzy rule-based models is proposed with intent to realize knowledge transfer in system modeling. This research mainly focuses on how to effectively exploit the existing fuzzy model, which has been constructed on extensive previously acquired experimental evidence and could be regarded as source of knowledge, in a new environment where only very limited experimental evidence is available. Rather than constructing a new model from scratch, knowledge conveyed by the existing model could be retained and reused in the target domain. The originality and innovation of this study lies in the adaption of the existing model to the new environment through optimal allocation of information granularity to produce granular fuzzy models, which are more abstract and general than the original numeric constructs. The granular fuzzy models yield results in a granular form whose quality is evaluated using the coverage and specificity criteria.
